COVID-19 and impact on peer review

As a result of the significant disruption that is being caused by the COVID-19 pandemic we are very aware that many researchers will have difficulty in meeting the timelines associated with our peer review process during normal times.  Please do let us know if you need additional time. Our systems will continue to remind you of the original timelines but we intend to be highly flexible at this time.

Call for papers: The impact of genomics on precision public health

Submit to our upcoming special issue 'The impact of genomics on precision public health', guest-edited by Muin Khoury and Kathryn Holt.

Expression of endogenous retroelements

Pierre Thibault, Claude Perreault and colleagues present a comprehensive transcriptomic characterization of endogenous retroelement expression in human tissues and cell types.

Aims and scope

Genome Medicine publishes important advances of broad interest in the application of genetics, genomics and multi-omics to understand, diagnose and treat disease. The Journal aims to bridge the basic science and clinical research communities in areas that include, but are not limited to: cancer genomics, immuno-oncology, immunogenomics, infectious disease, microbiome, neurogenomics, systems medicine, clinical genomics, gene therapies, precision medicine, and clinical trials. The Journal content includes original research, method, software, database and guideline articles as well as reviews, opinions and commentaries.
